GAP on the right track for Infrarail
You’re invited to join GAP Hire Solutions at Infrarail 2018, the UK’s largest rail infrastructure event. The three-day show which takes place on 1st – 3rd May at the ExCeL in London will be the first time the UK’s largest independent equipment hirer will exhibit at the annual event.
First staged in 1994, Infrarail is firmly established as Britain’s leading showcase for every aspect of railway infrastructure technology and expertise, with a strong reputation for attracting visiting managers, engineers and senior buyers.
GAP’s Head of Business Development & Marketing Karen Greenshields commented: “It will be great to meet with rail industry experts and showcase our hire equipment such as the Vortok Magnetic Safety Barrier and the Permaquip Rail Trolley. We will also be displaying a selection of equipment appropriate for the rail industry from our Survey & Safety and Lifting Hire & Sales divisions including cable detection kit, beam clamps, lever hoists and jacks.”
GAP launched as a plant hire company in 1969 and has come a long way since then, with eight specialist divisions and over 140 locations throughout the UK.
The Magnetic Safety Barrier cited is an innovative system that magnetically attaches to the web of the rail and is fully operational within minutes. By eliminating the need to lift ballasts, the Magnetic Safety Barrier simplifies the set-up process and protects users from airborne diseases created by ballast removal. Due to its patented ‘Quick Locking’ handrail system, the barrier can be used in freezing or high temperatures when track distortion would normally become an issue. For more product info click here.
